Michigan Stadium Renovation/Addition Project

Michigan Stadium

Energy Efficiency Measures

• Design building to meet energy efficiency and performance required by ASHRAE/IESNA 90.1-1999 with the exception of the glazing at suites and club areas
• Air handling units on occupancy schedule allow lower winter set-point for heating and higher summer set-point for cooling when the building is unoccupied
• Individual controls for air handling units allow heating and cooling to specific areas
• Automatic sensors at lavatories control water flow
• Tempered water is provided to lavatories minimizing the use of hot water
• Thermostat controls in each suite allows for individual control
• Use low flow toilet fixtures and waterless urinals

Other Sustainability Features at Michigan Stadium

• Design site sediment and erosion control to best management practices
• Stadium is located on bus routes
• No new parking is provided on site
• No net increase in storm water runoff
• ENERGY STAR roof for all new roof surfaces
• Reduce the use of municipally provided potable water through the use of waterless urinals and low flow fixtures
• Zero use of CFC-Based refrigerants
• Use regional and local material where possible (e.g. brick)
• Ventilation meets ASHRAE 62-1999 Indoor Air Quality requirements
• Use low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) materials, (e.g. adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings, carpet)
• Use building materials that have been extracted and/or harvested as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project site (e.g. brick)
• Operable windows and lighting controls provided for occupied spaces on building perimeter
• Comply with ASHRAE Standard 55-1992 for thermal control standards
• Day lighting provided to all interior spaces thereby reducing the use of electrical lights
